Stop and Rest - Personal Retreat

For the last week of 2021 and for 2022 we're introducing Personal Retreats. They take place at the very beginning (May) and end (October) of the season. These are a really pared back version of Serenity Retreat and we've reduced the price to reflect that.

What makes these weeks different?

Who's most suited to these weeks?

These weeks are probably for you if you're happy to be completely immersed in nature and are content to be (largely) left to your own devices. There may be the chance to catch up with others for meals etc (especially in the May week) but this isn't organised or offered as a selling point. It's best that you come along to these weeks knowing that it's possible that you may be alone for a week, although Kim is around for meditations etc. Perfect if you're really looking to tune into the rhythms of nature - no demands, allowing ourselves to be reflected in the quiet comings and goings of the world.

Do you need to:

Or maybe there's something else entirely? We welcome you all.

We'll have five periods of meditation over the week, comprising two sitting sessions each (none of which are obligatory) in the mornings.

How long is it and how much does it cost?

We'll be together for about an hour a day over five days and it's by donation.


Kim founded Serenity Retreat back in 2010. She is a trained Zenways Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher with over twelve years experience and has also trained in Self Compassion with Kristen Neff and Chris Germer. Most recently, Kim became a Kiloby Inquiries Facilitator in January 2022.

Her passion is to discover what really lies beneath, both for herself and others, and to encourage open-heartedness and fearlessness to the adventure of life. She's straightforward, no nonsense, and has an earthy sense of humour.

'Kim is an exceptional teacher; courageous , authentic, wise and compassionate She brings real humility and appropriate humour to her sessions and has an impressive ability to relate to everyone within diverse groups; there’s no sense of needing to be “one of us”. I have experienced Kim’s meditations, group discussion and exploration sessions and also one-to-one work and I am stuck by her ability to express and share the depth of her knowledge and insight in such an enjoyable, informative and impactful way. Oh and she’s a really lovely soul as well!' - Sarah

'My perception of you as a mentor/teacher/deliverer of content is that you are extremely intuitive and I notice you often see beyond just the words that someone may be saying, and are really good at peeling back the layers (gently and comfortably). In addition it is the raw honesty that ultimately enables a trusting relationship.' - Pankti
